Deep, even purple fading to pink at rim.
Pungent, ripe, alcoholic fruit aromas with some oak and tart black-cherry notes.
Full bodied and ripe cassis with vegetal notes, quite tart acidity and hard tannins, a long dry finish.
Excellent structure but will take a few years to reach its full potential.
Few of the tasters spotted this as an outsider in spite of the different origin and vintage!
